I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree from Louisiana Tech University. GO DAWGS! I recently moved to Prairieville after living in Northwest Louisiana for the past 10 years. I am thrilled to be a part of the Ascension Parish community, and I am looking forward to growing with the community and helping its members become their best selves.
I see counseling as a process in which you, the client, and I, the counselor, having come to an understanding and trust one another, work as a team to explore and define present problem situations, develop future goals for an improved life and work in a systematic fashion towards realizing those goals. I believe that each client has different needs; therefore, I use several different approaches and techniques, which include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, and Systemic Therapy. Additionally, I use Client-Centered Therapy in order to cater to your specific needs and create a safe environment in which you experience a sense of acceptance, openness, and empowerment.
I work with children, adults, and families who may be experiencing functional impairments in their home, family, work, school, and community areas of life due to mental health or behavioral issues. I focus on clients dealing with anger management issues, depression, anxiety, behavioral issues, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and difficulties in parental and/or peer relationships.
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology, with a Minor Degree in Family and Child Studies. Additionally, I hold a Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Guidance. I hold a license with the Louisiana State Board of Licensed Professional Counselors (License No. 6676).
